FROM THE OFFICE
FOLLOWING DISCUSSIONS AT THE ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING, A MEETING HAS BEEN SCHEDULED FOR THURSDAY 4 APRIL 2019 AT THE BRIGHTON CIVIC CENTRE, GREEN POINT ROAD, BRIDGEWATER TO DISCUSS THE OPTIONS AVAILABLE FOR A SOUTHERN VENUE COMMENCING AT 7.00PM FOR SOUTHERN CLUBS AND INTERESTED MEMBERS.
Members are advised that the TCA Inc office will close for the Easter break Thursday 18 April 2019 and will reopen Monday 29 April 2019.
Exhibitor’s attention is drawn to the following Regulations:
27 Any person resident in the state of Tasmania and handling an exhibit in any TCA Inc exhibition must be a financial member of the TCA Inc.
28 Any dog entered or exhibited by an unfinancial member of the TCA Inc may forfeit any award/s gained and/or the exhibitor/handler may incur such fine as decided by the Council
of the TCA Inc.
164 Trolleys, crates and baskets will be permitted in the assembly area with the permission of the
Stewards, however, such trolleys, crates and baskets must be removed at the conclusion of
the judging of each breed.
Exhibitor Lists will be checked and action taken against unfinancial members who continue to exhibit their dogs.
Members filming the judging at shows are advised that it must be done from the outside of ALL rings that are being used for judging at that time and in a manner that is not disruptive to the exhibitors and dogs being judged.
Clubs conducting Endurance Tests are reminded that the Tasmanian road laws do not allow cyclist and dog combinations on public roads.
When registering their dogs with the local Council members should enquire if a discount is available to members of the Association – some Councils do offer a discount provided a current TCA Inc
membership card can be provided.
